Bubbly, baps and Belfast Lough

I justified the pork and leek sausages, potato bread and soda farl because I started the day with a swim. At St. Georges market, I dodged all the temptation, including  Pie Tanic, a delicious sounding mixture of haddock, cider and flaky pastry. We worked up to lunch by going for a walk along Belfast Lough before repairing to the Crawfordsburn Inn to celebrate the forthcoming nuptials of Spud and the Contessa. We had a bottle of champagne and then another. Spud had fish and chips, Milhous had salmon and spuds, the Contessa opted for chicken and chips, and I had pork belly with black pudding and mash. Milhous pressed us all to a pudding. I ordered and ate pavlova. Boy, but it’s great to be back home.

    How wonderful it was to see the photos. Francesca and “Spuds” look great and very happy and P.Weil looks as adorable as always — and as mischievous as always! And herself (Liz) happy as a lark to be “home”! Our love and best wishes to all!
